The Wellington Sevens are one of the highlights of the New Zealand rugby calendar, but despite rising popularity in recent years the boot may be pit into them.
Police in the New Zealand capital criticized the organizers of the event after 270 spectators were ejected from the Westpac Stadium recently, mostly for drunkenness;the figure last year was 47 . Police are considering whether to take further action,which could include revoking the alcohol license for the ground.
One fan , who had traveled from Auckland for the event, said he would not be returning.”This place is an absolute zoo,” he complained. “there are guys exposing themselves and the behavior has changed. They have to take a good look at what’s going on here.His mood was not softened by wining NZ$10,000 in a best costume competition-as a can of 7 Up.
